THANK YOU TO the AWESOME TEENAGE GIRLS ACROSS THE WORLD WHO SHARED THEIR STORIES, WISDOM + WIT FOR THIS GLOBAL STORYTELLING PROJECT!
We are still taking submissions! But be quick!! Read below.
We look forward to launching You Are Not Your Face in 2019. Stay tuned for launch details!
An open call to teenage girls of the world!
Your lives, insights, stories and voices matter to us, and we want to hear—and share—your story in your own words with girls across the planet so they can learn from your experience.
We’re still taking submission for this project, and would love to hear your favourite quotes, opinions and ideas about the world and your personal stories, and seek submissions of 500-words (or less) for a new book coming out in 2019. Submissions could include pieces of writing, essays, reflections and poems on subjects that matter to you to feature in ‘You Are Not Your Face’!
Your writing might be a personal story about the effects of social media, what you think about feminism, acts of bravery, love, loss, triumph, friendship, fear or ANYTHING where you learned something awesome about yourself or the world that you think other girls could learn from.
It might even be TIPS, TRUTHS or MANTRAS you use!
Just write it how you’d say it! You don’t need to consider yourself a writer to be part of this. (Please submit in your native language and our content team will translate to English).
We are looking for unique global voices to share. Add your voice to this powerful project by girls, for girls of the world.
PLEASE COMPLETE YOUR SUBMISSION BELOW
Please submit in your native/first language if preferred (published content will be translated to English). Selected writing will be published as excerpts and/or in full on the girledworld website and may appear in other girledworld formats, including in the girledworld ‘You Are Not Your Face’ book (due for publication in 2019) and across associated social media campaigns and book collateral.
SUBMIT YOUR ENTRY BELOW. WE CAN’t WAIT TO READ IT!
